Kottu House is a cozy spot to pop in on Broome St. in the Lower East Side if you need a quick but delicious bite. We went on a Tuesday night around 6pm - there was no one else in the restaurant at the time, although they were fielding online orders. This was my first time having Sri Lankan food, and while I can’t attest to its authenticity, I can say that the dish I ordered was delicious (and not to spicy thanks to the “extra mild” option). We loved that the menu had more vegetarian & pescatarian options than meat dishes and that dinner was served in a cardboard carton which made taking leftovers a breeze.

Recommendations: We had the lentil patties to start with some really delicious mint hibiscus tea. I had the Sneaky Pineapple for my main which was a little sweet and a lot of yum. Check at their menu, which offers lots of vegetarian options + some gluten free.

Cost: Mains are $10 - $12 while small plates or $6 - 9.

Where: 250 Broome St. (between Orchard and Ludlow) New York, NY 10002 (about a 30 min subway ride from Our Place, or 25 minutes on a bike)
